Moving Mountains creates the world’s first foot long plant-based hot dog that looks and taste like meat

 Food-tech brand launches second revolutionary plant-based meat product into restaurants and retail

Moving Mountains®, the pioneering food-tech company leading plant-based innovation into unimagined territory and creator of the UK’s first meatless ‘bleeding’ burger, is partnering with Future Food-Tech London to serve its revolutionary Hot Dog to delegates.

Unlike any other plant-based hot dog on the market, Moving Mountains has used food technology, incredible scientific processes, specialised machines, local natural ingredients and tested countless recipes over the past year to create the Moving Mountains Hot Dog, which is identical to its pork counterpart in taste, smell and texture.

The food service Moving Mountains Hot Dog is almost a foot long at 10 inches and 3cm in width.

Made primarily from sunflower seeds with a delicious naturally smoked flavour and satisfyingly firm yet bouncy texture, the Moving Mountains Hot Dog looks and tastes just like a pork hot dog or frankfurter. It will fool even the most committed carnivores and convince them that a pig isn’t needed to make a dog.

With 69% of flexitarians looking to actively trying to reduce their meat consumption, the release of Moving Mountains’ second revolutionary product will help them to increase their share in the £284.1million meat-free category[1] by targeting flexitarian consumers.[2]

By using simple and natural ingredients and the latest food technology, Moving Mountains has turned sunflower seeds into a vitamin rich and gluten free hot dog that replicates a pork hot dog in every way:

  • Sunflower Seeds make up the base, which are rich in B complex vitamins, phosphorus, magnesium, iron, calcium, potassium, vitamin E and a high source of protein
  • Carrots are used to give the authentic colouring of a hot dog
  • Onion helps to give a satisfyingly firm and bouncy texture when biting into the hot dog
  • Paprika adds a punch of flavour and is rich in antioxidants
  • Coconut oil provides a juicy consistency and helps keep the structure of the hot dog. Unlike the unhealthy saturated fats found in pork hot dogs, coconut oil contains zero trans-fat, zero cholesterol and is rich in antioxidants. Coconut oil contains beneficial medium chain fatty acids including lauric acid, which has been scientifically proven to provide an immediate source of energy and helps boost good cholesterol.

Simeon Van der Molen, Founder of Moving Mountains says:  “Future Food Tech is the perfect fit for us to present the Moving Mountains Hot Dog to a venue full innovative minds and pioneers in the Food Technology sector. The summit aligns with our values as promoters of plant-based innovation to ultimately help make a difference to the world.

Following the resounding success of the UK’s first meatless bleeding burger, our Hot Dog is set to make frankfurters desirable again, giving them a long deserved revamp. Our latest food tech innovation proves that you don’t need a pig to make a dog; we use sunflower seeds to deliver an identical taste and texture, which is a more sustainable food option for our health and the health of the planet.

Moving Mountains will host a networking lunch break at Future Food-Tech on October 17.
